Award List:

An Array of Silicon-based Direction-Sensitive Detectors for Imaging the Gamma-Ray Background

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2006 / STTR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / ARMY
Research Institution: UNIV. OF MICHIGAN
Principal Investigator: Byron Wells
Award Amount: $98,224.00
RI Contact: Tom Zdeba
Abstract:
A gamma ray camera, based principally on position-sensitive silicon detectors, is proposed as a means to imaging the radioactive materials in the background. In order to maximize its utility, the background imager should be able to sense environmental alterations out to reasonable ranges, be of… More

Increased Range Neutron Response High Explosives Detection

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2006 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator: Byron Wells, Technical Officer
Award Amount: $99,176.00
Abstract:
The coupling of a pulsed neutron source and a depth-sensitive Compton camera based on fast inorganic scintillation crystals is proposed as a means for imaging high explosives and other materials at intermediate to long ranges. The use of scintillators allows one to deploy relatively large active… More

Increased Range Neutron Response High Explosives Detection

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2007 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator: Byron Wells, Manager
Award Amount: $734,583.00
Abstract:
A depth-sensitive Compton camera based on fast inorganic scintillators is proposed as a means to rapidly image high explosives and other organic materials at intermediate to long ranges. The feasibility of the method, established during the Phase I research, will be demonstrated during Phase II,… More

Multispectral Gamma Detector for Explosives Analysis

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / ARMY
Principal Investigator: Subhashree Ramadoss, R&D Engineer
Award Amount: $69,913.00
Abstract:
The coupling of a neutron source and a Compton camera based on fast inorganic scintillation crystals is proposed as a means for imaging high explosives and other materials at intermediate ranges. The use of scintillators allows one to deploy relatively large active detection areas, which are… More

Special Nuclear Material (SNM) Detection

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / DARPA
Principal Investigator: Subhashree Ramadoss, R&D Engineer
Award Amount: $98,967.00
Abstract:
The challenge of highly specific long-range detection of special nuclear materials (SNM) requires the development of alternative technologies to those typically deployed in the nuclear radiation detection field. We propose to quantify the feasibility of one such alternative during the Phase I… More

High Efficiency Spectroscopic Angular Imaging via a Compton Camera using Fast Inorganic Scintillators

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2012 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOD / ARMY
Principal Investigator: Byron Wells, General Manager – (734) 223-1228
Award Amount: $726,810.00
Abstract:
In order to effectively manage hazardous environments, one requires a detailed knowledge of those materials that pose a threat to valued assets. Through both detector characterization and system modeling, we demonstrated the feasibility of using a Compton Camera based on inorganic scintillators as a… More
